Several of this week's stars came from other gardeners. The Daisies are from my Aunt Ev's garden, and the Bigroot Geranium, also known as Cranesbill, came from my next door neighbor. The Poppies came from another neighbor, as did the Snowdrop Anemone.
Cushion Spurge blossoms are actually a bit of a letdown, as the bracts lose their stunning yellow color about the time the blossoms emerge.
